Climate Change Impacts on High-Altitude Ecosystems, 2015

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Öztürk Münir, Hakeem Khalid Rehman, Faridah-Hanum I., Efe Recep

Couverture de l’ouvrage Climate Change Impacts on High-Altitude Ecosystems
This book covers studies on the systematics of plant taxa and will include general vegetational aspects and ecological characteristics of plant life at altitudes above 1000 m. from different parts of the world. This volume also addresses how upcoming climate change scenarios will impact high altitude plant life. It presents case studies from the most important mountainous areas like the Himalayas, Caucasus and South America covering the countries like Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Kirghizia, Georgia, Russia,Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Americas. The book will serve as an invaluable resource source undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers.
